ALL EYES ARE TURNED TOWARD
Where we are developing orchards and garden farms that will satisfy all who seek an alUthe-year
southern home. On our lands you can raise any kind of fruit or vegetable known, and exceptional trans?
portation facilities by rail and water make it possible for industrious farmers and orchardists to become wealthy.
ALFALFA FIELD
No finer garden land anywhere. We will sell small farms on easy terms
of payment. As West Point grows these {arms will be in demand for building
lots and will bring their owners great profit.
DO NOT WAIT ONE DAY
'!'" ?ll W.'*'l!'ll?,J
BEAUTIFUL WATERFRONTS
These grand country home-sites are closely restricted and will prove
very desirable to all those who are exclusive and want the very
best.
WATERFRONTS ARE LIMITED
Come at once and pick out your farm. There is time yet to get in a paying crop. West Point,
around which our operations are centered, is the most promising town on the Atlantic Seaboard. Write
for further details concerning the town and what we have to offer.
